text: This cold weather they will rebuild the The-pong morung. First Dzing-ben (of Aukheang) will take an omen with eggs. The Aukheang and Angban morung will come to help.
text: (161) From Chintong the Ang-nau morung will come and from Chinlong the Banha morung. They don't come to help but (when the morung is finished) for dancing. The girls who married to Chintong and Chinlong come too?
text: The morungs Angban, Balang and Bala give one basket of dhan from every house.
